Music Inspired by Game of Thrones Album to be released

Game of Thrones Sigur Ros S4Columbia Records will be partnering with HBO on an album with music inspired by Game of Thrones as part of celebrating the final season of the epic saga.

Lots of content is being developed to mark the end of a television era, the final season of Game of Thrones which is due to air in 2019. There’s the Cersei Lannister-themed beer, Queen of the 7 Kingdoms, which is due to be released later this month, and now a collection of music. No doubt even more merchandise will be available on this final stretch.

According to Billboard, the album would feature songs “from diverse musical genres.” No full track listing has been released so far.

The musical score for the series is done excellently by Ramin Djawadi, who also does the music for HBO’s Westworld. His compositions range from the themes of each of the houses like Stark, Lannister, and Targaryen to the distinctively royal opening theme and the chilling piano piece, “The Light of the Seven.”

Musicians have also been known to appear on the show such as Dr. Feelgood guitarist Wilko Johnson, Snow Patrol singer Gary Lightbody who performed “The Bear and the Maiden Fair” way in season 3, Coldplay drummer Will Champion also in season 3, and Sigur Ros performed “The Rains of Castamere” at Joffrey’s wedding to Margaery in season 4. Then, there was Ed Sheeran’s much-hyped cameo last season in “Dragonstone.”

And don’t forget that 12-minute long Game of Thrones musical starring Coldplay and major members of the cast. This album might be something else though we still don’t have a lot of details about it. It’s certain though that the eight seasons of this fantasy epic are more than enough inspiration for a truly amazing collection of music.

Don’t miss the concluding chapter of Game of Thrones in 2019 on HBO.
